PC Videogames Piracy will end in 2 years?

posted in NEWS | 3 Comments

I saw on various online videogames magazine this news, and probably you have read it too. In short a chinese cracker-group called 3DM said that encryption technology continues to improve, and that in 2 years will be too difficult or time consuming to “crack” a game. The new challenge for the Piracy-Groups around the world is called Denuvo, this software studio could have found the right way to stop the piracy, if i understood correctly Denuvo is not impossible to crack, this is not how it works, it can be cracked BUT It (could) takes times, weeks, months or even years! And after 1-3 years i think developers and publishers won’t care much if the game is cracked or not.

Now i don’t know if Denuvo will make pc games uncrackable for 1,2,3 or more years but imagine a world where PC Games Piracy doesn’t exist… What will happen? This will prevent access to games to some people with lack of money or people that live in restricted markets, i heard (but don’t know if it’s true) that 3DM group were cracking their PC games cause in China those games are not sold, hence the only way to play is to download illegally (in China).

Don’t know what do you think about that, but for me as long as Denuvo is not a virus-spyware, or something that destroy the hardware, for me it’s ok. I mean the developers and the publishers have all the rights to copy-protect their work and money invested.

Now there are some problems with Denuvo:

1) i have no idea but i think this technology is not for everyone, it is probably expensive and only large companies (probably) can include it in their games.
2) this could be bad for game historic archive, since the game is encrypted.
3) On the Denuvo official site they say “Denuvo Anti-Tamper does not constantly read or write-encrypt and decrypt any data to storage media”… the problem is they used the word “constantly” they didn’t just said “no”

Don’t worry here at G4G.it there are over 4000 freegames to download and play… and some are even good! 😆

NVIDIA bombards PC game pirates

posted in NEWS | Leave a Comment

I found this article on Kotaku. I can’t believe what i just read, this words against piracy comes from Nvidia? NVIDIA?? All this years this graphic cards manufacturers have been the most ‘blessed’ by the download of the games, the file-sharing boosted and a lot the selling of their chips, mr. Roy Taylor the guys who downloads have feed your family all this years by pointing money on your products, those money otherwise would have gone the developers way.. how u dare come on the internet and do ‘the professor’ judging what is good or what is bad? Just go back to your factory and try to do a decent and not so overpriced gpu.. leave the serious discussions to us the gamers.

Positive aspects of Piracy (file sharing)

posted in NEWS | 5 Comments

pirate_dog_01.jpg

Let’s say it Piracy (meant as sharing files for no money) isn ‘t the only reason behind drop in sales, the situation is far more complex, piracy is just a part of a greater scheme.. today i wanna talk about the good positive aspects of the Piracy..

1-The pollution, let’s face it the media (dvd,cd etc) are polluting the planet with file sharing no plastic garbage or forest cutted to make the box packaging.

2-The bad game don’t pass, or pass only for the casual players, yes you could argue that there are demos for that, but that is half-true cause sometimes demos don ‘t comes out, or get released after the game launch and sometimes demos don’t give the right view of the final product.

3-Poor people exist and considering life is short why negating them the pleasure of playing many games eansted of the few ones they can buy? After all that game wouldn’t be bought..

4-Save the (very) old games from oblivion, i mean some great guys wrote many great emulators, how we could use back then (when no wii virtual console existed) the roms if some ‘hacker’ didn’t dumped them?

5-A huge library made by millions of p2p users around the world, i mean no offense but we can live even without blockbuster(movies), pop-stars can gain money with concerts and club perform(mp3) and the videogames will loose a 10-20% from the total purchases (after all consoles are pirated too but they sells like hell)

6-Hardware sells, in many countries people buy computers and mostly new video cards, did they do so if they didn’t have access to piracy? i suspect ati and nvidia wouldn’t sell so good.

7-Porno don’t get money, i mean you must be joking me? Why should i pay to watch a porno movie where persons without money(the women) are exploited

8-Connections sells, i mean who need 10-100mbit hyper fast connection just for checking e-mail, surfing the web or faster youtube video load? none, the fast connections are sold just for download. It’s a fact.

The future is made of multiplayer games (the only copy protection that works), mmo(world of warcraft or Guild Wars) and ads paid games,movies, music. The internet is made for people not corporations.

I hope no1 get offended by this article, my point of view on files sharing is neutral i don’t hype it but not condemn it either. Btw to make it clear i found disgusting making money from others works(but this doesn’t happen in sharing files).

And you? What do you think?
